Normally I just avoid desserts altogether because of the additional calories, but one of my coworkers lovingly insisted on getting me some sort of sugar-free treat for my birthday. I suggested sugar-free brownies thinking she would just go to the store and get a mix for sugar-free brownies (See my review of Pillsbury Sugar Free Brownies here). But, instead, she went to one of my favorite bakeries (which she didn’t know at the time), Three Brothers Bakery in Houston.
When I opened the box I wasn’t all too excited as I’m kind of a “plain Jane” about my food so the nuts and frosting were a bit much for me. Then I picked one up and it was exceptionally heavy and dense. I decided I could probably only make it through a half of one. I was right! It was very filling. AND, I was wrong, the frosting and nuts added to the amazing fudge density of these brownies. They are amazing. My coworkers agreed and polished off a good portion of them quickly. Did they have the laxative effect of sugar-free chocolate? Yes, I did notice my stomach was a little upset within a few hours, but not terribly bad and I don’t think there’s a way around it.
Overall, two thumbs up to Three Brothers Bakery and an additional thumbs up for a great and quick email back when I send them an email to compliment them on it. Thanks Three Brothers Bakery for an amazing birthday treat!
